I thought its gonna last all day, but it stop after a couple of hours. Thank GOd! Cause I got plans on the next day. =)
The photo below taken when we were waiting for JJs van to picked him up for school. I was freezing to death but the kids were able to endure it! In fact they are loving it! ugh! Heres the little guy giggling so hard, he was tickled by a snow on his face. lol
and Kuya JJ sticking his tongue out. lol
Our tree this year! Love it! Its 7.5″ Donner Fir, got it from WalMart for a very good price.
I finished decorating it last week, wrapped all the presents the other day and now it look nicer with all those presents under it. =)
I just wish that CLayton my younger son would stop grabbing all the balls. He actually broke some of my favorite glass balls, he throws them on the floor and broke to tiny pieces. It was my fault, I was so dumb to put it so low where he can reach it easy. And every time he grabs one..i return it on the same spot. lol. actually im teaching him how to control himself, and the word No. But it doesnt sink in.. hmp! Im hoping it will later on. =)
ANyway.. Christmas is almost near and its getting colder every day. It makes me think of Home. The midnight masses, all the carolings, the smell of pandesal and kakanin in the morning..thinking about it…gives me a warm feeling inside. Oh how I wish Im home in Phil. Everybody is so happy even the mouse under the cupboard. =)
Anyhow.. Im thankful that we are still breathing and things are getting back to normal from last year event. I thank hubby for buying me this tree, it sure cheer me up everyday. I Love u baby!!
They didnt stay long coz they still have friends to visit around here in York before heading back to Florida. We had a nice little chit chat, while the guys surveyed the backyard, and the kids busy playing with their toys. It was fun. Hope we could visit their place in Florida someday, she promised to tour us around Disney World and other fun places in Orlando. I sure cant wait when that time comes! I hope this Xmas! lol. well.. we need to pave some things first before we take vacations. Hubby had been trying to get back in business, coping up from that 6months absence from work. =)
Anyhow.. here are some photos to share.. click to enlarge. =)
It has been quite a busy week for me, that I forgot to update this blog. I got so much things to share, but only a few minutes to spare, with all these Holidays coming, shopping, decorating, and preparing for the coming winter season, had made me extremely busy. I almost forgot to mention, Colds is just around the corner. It had been infecting us for quite some time now since the temperature dropped down below the freezing point, so in the end of the day.. Im pretty much exhausted. =(
Anyway, we had a simple Thanksgiving Feast. Instead of Turkey, I roasted Chicken because we could never finish eating a Turkey. Its too big for us, there will be a lot of left overs, and hubby is not that fond of Turkeys. I also made some mashed potatoes and gravy, and mixed berries Cheesecake for dessert, recipe from Food Network by Ina Garten. =)
Everything was good.. I believe, coz hubby emptied his plate and so are the kids. Even though the cheesecake was cracked, it was still good. After dinner, we watched our favorite show Fringe and the kids watched their favorite show on TV. I sure gained some extra pounds that night, but I got it back down the next day. Black Friday. You know what Black Friday means.. it means sales! discounts! 50-70% off on everything! shopping shopping shopping!! LoL.
I went shopping for the kids winter clothes, shoes, and xmas decorations, then thats it. I didnt bought much because we dont have much resources. We are saving money for this winter season, just in case of emergency, or something expensive comes up, at least we got something to pull out. How I wish we got lots, so I could buy everything that I want in the store. Right now.. its not a good idea. =) But hubby surprised me with a new vacuum. lol
I was so exhausted after all these events. It took me a couple of days to get back on my feet. I hope I could update this blog everyday so that I wont get behind in Blogosphere.
Friends I will just blog hop later.. coz after this Im going shopping. lol
